Fixed frames

Inserting double glazed units into aluminium is a simple process. For fixed (non-opening) windows, the aluminium bead is removed to reveal the double glazing pocket.

The double glazed unit is placed inside the pocket and a new colour matched bead is put in place to hold the unit in place.

Sash frames

For sash (opening) windows, the complete sash is removed and replaced with a new double glazed sash frame, new stays and new handles.

Sliding Doors

The special adaptor frame is fitted into the sliding door, the adaptor frame holds the new double glazed unit.
